Looks good!

Were you able to add in the tracer lines and the "hits" using BeFunky?

I like it!! cheers

BeFunky looks to have a lot of tools to edit and tweak pics but I think I prefer 'Comic life' as it is a dedicated comic making programme as opposed to BeFunky's more graphic design leaning.


..But use what you're happy with Steve. cheers

Thanks guys,

The stories look much better when they are framed like this .. Steve I agree BeFunky seems to be more Graphic design.. so its onto Comic Life today to see what that can do ( or more accuratley what I can't Shocked lol! ) ... I think between them I can pep up my posts lol! ... Finally you all cheer lol!

Dave the tracer lines and hits are dotted lines and a graphic bubble sized and changed colour. - all in the BeFunky capability. I have paid $60 USD for the full capability for a year , but the basic would do the trick for most simple "one panel" stories ?. Dal what version do you use ?

I'd love to be able to get to BackBrazens level of special effects ... but as they say baby steps.... lol!


Will keep you posted. cheers

I suspect you will love Comic Life... especially since it is a one-time purchase rather than an annual subscription.

Nice work Steve!!!

I've been using ComicLife for a few years and Comic Book Creator before that. Haven't tried BeFunky, but don't care for a subscription service.

cheers cheers cheers

Direct and punchy. Nice layout.
The borders available in Comic Life help the panels stand out from the background.
